Come join us Tuesday Aug 1st onboard the gundalow for a talk by Lighthouse Historian Jeremy D’Entremont. The sail leaves from Prescott Park at 6:00 and we will visit two of New Hampshire’s historic lighthouses.
On this evening’s cruise, Jeremy will recap the fascinating history of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse in New Castle, New Hampshire, and Whaleback Lighthouse in Kittery, Maine. He will also discuss Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouses’ extensive restoration work on both lighthouses, and the plans for a new docking system at Whaleback. He will tell about the fascinating human history of lighthouse keepers and their families, and he might even include a ghost story or two.
Jeremy D’Entremont has been photographing, researching, and writing about lighthouses for more than three decades. He is the author of 15 books and hundreds of articles on lighthouses and other maritime subjects, including The Lighthouse Handbook: New England and a four-volume set on the lighthouses of Maine. He is the founder of Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouses, and historian for the American Lighthouse Foundation. He has lectured and narrated cruises all over New England, and his company, New England Lighthouse Tours, offers minivan tours to lighthouses.
